to senator susan collins, she didn't get the answers that she was looking for. she said she still has a lot of unanswered questions. it's really important to understand how significant susan collins is in this potential process. she isn't nominated for secretary of state, nobody is, but she's still considered to be a leading contender and that's part of the reason why she's been coming up in a really unusual way, frankly, making the rounds and trying to effectively lobby senators that she didn't do anything that wrong even before she's nominated. but the reason why susan collins is so important, she's one of the few remaining moderate republicans left. if susan rice is nominated to be secretary of state and other republicans make good on their promise to block her, susan collins would be a critical voice. the fact that she says she's still troubled is bad, bad news. i asked her how she would vote if sherp to vote right now. take a listen. >> need to have additional information before i could support her nomination. she's not been posted yet. our homeland security committee investigation is
what she said. >> just connections susan collins was making. i want to move on and just talk about the president. we haven't seen president obama say, obviously, outright, she is my top pick. but we saw her really sort of -- saw him vehemently defending her recently. let me replay that. president obama. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> tell me about their background. they go back to his 2008 election? >> they go back even further. she was an adviser to him when he was a senator from illinois. and it goes back, tony lake was his -- the former national security adviser, democrat, in the clinton administration, and he sort of introduced those two. so she has been probably along with tom donilon, the people really worked with first when he took an interest in these issues. >> she has some sharp elbows. you write about this in your piece, just this month, which apparently one of her favorite words is a word i canno
. ambassador rice will meet with susan collins from maine and bob corker from tennessee . ahead of his meeting that what worries him most about ambassador rice she may be more concerned about delivering the party line than pressuring the administration when it might be off base. three other republican senators met with the embattled ambassador and that meeting did little to quiet their harsh criticism of her job performance. >> i am more concerned than i was before that the 15th of september explan of how four americans died in benghazi, libya. >> why she wouldn't have asked i am the person who doesn't know about this and going on every show. it is not only the talking points unclassified but part of her responsibility as the ambassador . united nations she reviewed more than that. >> in a written statement she knows that the intelligence that she based her sunday swars on is wrong and there no spontanous demonstration and saying while we wish we had had perfect information just days after the terrorist attack as is often the case inteleassessment evolve would and neither i nor anyone in the a
york times" and in an interview with senator susan collins of maine, a moderate voice on the republican site of the aisle expresses some misgivings about ambassador rice, which is a real, i would think, danger sign for her -- >> listen, the president is going to get the secretary of state that he wants. if he wants susan rice, other republicans are going to do is waste a lot of time and effort and in the last -- in the last -- they know something that nobody else knows that susan rice was deliberately cooking the books but when she has the intel community sitting next to her saying this is what we'll let you say, i think she's pretty good shape. >> i think that's true and also making her -- putting the president in a corner from which it's almost impossible for him not to nominate her but wants her to be secretary of state -- look at all the signs, he seems to be leaning in her direction for awhile but now in this position if he doesn't nominate her, he's backing down in the face of what seems to be largely a political and unfounded opposition to her. it seems to me like they're making
. today she meets with senator susan collins, top republican on the homeland security committee and senator bob corker, republican on the foreign relations committee. both of them said they have some concerns but e willing to hear her out, soledad. >> elise labott, thank you. we appreciate it. member of the foreign relations committee which will vote to confirm the next secretary of state once there has been a nomination. thank you for being with us. >> good morning, soledad. >> you have said in the past -- i'm reading off your press release on saturday, october 27th. you said this. it's becoming more apparent that the administration's lack of truthfulness seems to emanate from a desire to hide something from the american people. you said this along with senator corker, i should add. almost two months has passed. it's time for the president to timely come clean and order the administration to fully disclose all the communications relevant to the security information in benghazi. surely the deaths of four diplomatic servants warrant that action. do you think ambassador rice shoul
